promo tour: kareena kapoor for ‘heroine’ part 1

September 28, 2012

is it me or are promo tours getting longer and longer? it seems like actresses nowadays are putting more work into the promo tour than the actual movie. i remember blogging about emma stone’s pt for the amazing spiderman left me exhausted, this one isn’t much different. i have already covered 3 looks, now on to the rest.

have i become a whiny brat or WHAT. ok let’s do dis.

kareena teamed up with bollywood super stylist tanya ghavri (who has worked wonders with asin and styles sonam kapoor) to create some j’amazing looks for her appearances. i love that actresses are reaching out to stylists, a little help never killed anyone.

let’s take a look at kareena’s best looks from the tour (she wears paula ka in the picture above, one of her best looks ever). and then move to the bad.

:: in osman ::

 i always love it when chicitas take the experimental route. at a clothing launch/heroine promo kareena gave us a look we are not used to seeing from her. a very dramatic route. she wears a white dress with statement sleeves by british designer osman. the dress is paired up with a beehive, cat-eyes and a gorgeous neckpiece.  she totally has the attitude to make this work. some of you might think this is too much. but for me, it is just right.

:: in mara hoffman ::

kareena stunned at a promo appearance in dubai wearing a ruched lime green mara hoffman dress. this color is divine on kareena. and the makeup is spot on. i cannot remember her looking this amazing in a long time.  there is always one or two things that don’t sit right with kareena’s looks, but this one is a 10. a ponytail and jimmy choos complete this look. one of my favorites.

:: in bcbg ::

 kareena wears THE color of the moment as she appears on a tv show in india. she is beautiful in this royal blue bcbg dress with an embellished neckline. she looks insanely polished and sophisticated in this look – i am getting a total karisma vibe here. unfortunately this gorg dress is all wrong for the situation. i mean, she is all decked out for a comedy show. a bit of a fail. a dress wasted. i wish she had worn this to a more high profile event.

:: in rachel roy ::

 i am obsessed with shirt-dresses at the moment. kareena makes a tv appearance wearing a green shirt dress with blue accents by rachel roy. i really like this look on her. it is young, hip and simple – it is hard to find a dress which embodies all 3 of these qualities.  a simple blowout and nude loubies complete the look.

:: in falguni and shane peacock::

 another jaw-dropping look by kareena. my girl wears falguni and shane peacock (a label seen on many international celebs including j-lo) to an interview. she looks amazing in this fitted, long-sleeved printed dress. i think long-sleeved dresses always look so chic. she pairs the dress up with a statement necklace and nude peeptoes. also, the girl works a ponytail like no other.

::in manish malhotra ::

while appearing on jhalak dilak ja kareena wears an emerald green manish malhotra anarkali with gold embellishment and pink accents. while i love this color + dress on kareena, i do think manish malhotra needs to step away from this design. i feel like i have seen one billion versions of this in different fabrics and colors in the past 4 years. come on man, change it up. anywho, i think kareena looks fab in this outfit. she does desi very well. i like the loose shalwar with embellishment, but not with the anarkali – imagine how killer this shalwar would look with a short fitted shirt.

:: in osman ::

kareena wore another osman dress for the unveiling of her filmfare magazine cover. call me crazy but i love this dress. it is so fun and goth at the same time. the halter neck and fringe is working for me.  kareena has the attitude to pull this off. a low chignon, that gorgeous skin and kohl-lined eyes complete this look. sorry i couldn’t find a full length pic, but she wears black ysl heels with the dress.

 :: in ungaro ::

isn’t this dress to die for? kareena is gorgeous in a printed turquoise ungaro dress. look at that face! her skin is a dream.  her off the shoulder dress has pleating detail on the sides of the dress and a fit-n-flare shape. she is working a ponytail again – SO well. a pair of nude louboutins complete the look, would have loved to see better shoes with this but i like the girly vibe those shoes lend the look.

:: in pernia qureshi ::

 kareena wears an aqua pernia qureshi dress for an interview early on in the tour (quick trivia: kareena’s stylist tanya g. was pernia’s assistant on aisha) i like this look, it is totally feminine and sweet – a contrast to the character kareena is portraying in the film. with the double collar, drop waist and pleats this dress has a lot going on, but i think it has a fun vibe. the hair is great, but i would love to see kareena with a braided ‘do.

:: in manish malhotra ::

 omg this blogpost is never-ending. kareena wears yet another manish malhotra outfit as she appears on a serial as part of her promotional duties. i love the white and red combo, particularly the embroidery on the sleeves. i love the hair, the flawless face and the earrings, but i wish the dupatta wasn’t draped across her like  that.

phew. done.

which look do you love?
